The music Olive Dame Campbell discovered in Appalachia permeates our culture today

To warm you up for the performance this coming Saturday night (May 2) of Revels Repertory Company's new musical theater production Voices from the Mountain, here are four very different renditions of songs you will hear in the show. These diverse performances give a sense of how deeply this music permeates our culture, and how we keep making it our own, again and again. The third video is from the movie Songcatcher, which will be screened at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth on Wednesday evening, April 29.
